With the rediscovery of the Helm Memory Core, the ensuing technological 
renaissance led to the improvents in military equipment, medical treatments, 
and purification equipment for water, atmospheres, and whole planetary 
environments, despite ComStar's futile clandestine interference attempts.  A 
small company known as Sarao Steelworks, based on the Davion-aligned planet of 
Franklin, was one of the companies that benefited from the renaissance, and 
soon grew to be a leader in successfully mass-producing double heat sinks (also 
known as "Freezers") for the AFFS (and later on, the AFFC).  The company would 
later branch out into battlemech-refitting as well, primarily the replacement 
of heat sinks with Freezers, though the company does weapon and armor 
replacements as well, resulting in new variants of certain battlemechs; one of 
these new variants was the Marauder MAD-4D.

The Marauder MAD-4D is a modest upgrade of the MAD-3D model used by the AFFS.  
The chassis was mainly the same, but the 20 heat sinks were replaced with 16 
double-strength versions, significantly improving the cooling capacity.  
Protection was also upgraded, as Sarao Steelworks replaced the original armor 
with 12.5 tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor.

In terms of weaponry, the MAD-4D retains the originial's arm-mounted weapons.  
However, Sarao Steelworks replaced the Large Laser on the right torso was 
replaced with a Donal PPC, and also improved the mounting of the weapon; due to 
the Donal's distinct 'long-barrel' design, the MAD-4D appears to have a similar 
silhouette as the MAD-3R Marauder.  Close-range firepower was slightly 
improved, by adding another Magna Mk II Medium Laser in the center torso.

The Marauder MAD-4D variants were mainly deployed by AFFC forces currently 
stationed in the Draconis and Capellan Marches, although this variant has been 
used for AFFC pirate-hunting operations as well.
